SEMINAR
Australia's rangelands - some dismal science perspectives
Wednesday, 3 September 2014 at 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Fenner Seminar Room, Frank Fenner Building 141
The study of Australia's rangelands by scientists and agronomists is generally motivated by the laudable objective of improving the livelihoods of producers, as well as their contribution to the well-being of other Australians. However, scientific research is often focused on understanding physical phenomena and effects. Although some work also takes into account effects on farm profitability there is a considerable risk that wider economic effects can be ignored by a one-sided focus on purely commercial perspectives.
PUBLIC LECTURE
Women's Political Participation in China
Wednesday, 3 September 2014 at 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM
Lecture Theatre 2 (2.02), Sir Roland Wilson Building (Bld 120), McCoy Circuit ANU.
This lecture looks at the issue of women's political participation in China with particular reference to village committees in the context of the continuing low level of women's political participation in village governance structures in the reform period, and particularly following the widespread introduction of competitive village elections since 1988.
SEMINAR
Linguists in the education space
Wednesday, 3 September 2014 at 4:15 PM - 5:15 PM
Al-Falasi Theatre, CAIS Bldg 127, Ellery Crescent, ANU
Presented as part of the ANU Language Teaching Forum. At so many levels, schooling in Australia could benefit from linguistically informed advice, particularly where education is delivered in linguistically complex contexts. The question is whether linguists are prepared for the nature of the very particular "site" of schools which have their own culture, knowledge sets and practices. In this presentation, the school domain is viewed through the lens of the linguist to draw out the existing tensions. Specific reference is made to language in education policy, language ecologies and school data, and the role of language in teaching and assessment in the context of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education. The ramifications for linguists and for teachers/administrators are shown to be manifold, with deep and respectful engagement on the part of linguists being the recommended way forward.
FILM
Precipitations 明日大致多雲
Wednesday, 3 September 2014 at 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM
The Auditorium, CIW Building, Fellows Lane
Filmed in Kowloon, Hong Kong, during the rainy spring of 2013, Precipitations is less a forecast than a portrait of the city, drawn via the journeys of several people involved with art and social activism.
